Introduction  
This document describes the Versatile Interface Processor (VIP6-80), an option available for use with  
the Cisco 7500 series and the Cisco 7000 series routers using the 7000 Series Route Switch Processor  
(RSP7000) and 7000 Series Chassis Interface (RSP7000CI). The VIP6-80 improves high-performance  
switching over previous generation VIPs.  
The VIP6-80 supports online insertion and removal (OIR), a feature that allows you to remove and  
replace a VIP6-80 without first shutting down the system. However, the VIP6-80 does not support OIR  
of port adapters (PAs). The VIP6-80 must be removed before removing or installing the port adapter.  
The VIP6-80 also supports Single Line Card Reload, a feature that reloads a failed line card on the  
network backplane without reloading other line cards. Refer to the “Single Line Card Reload” section  
on page 32 for more information.  
The VIP6-80 supports any combination of LAN and WAN PAs, including Fast Ethernet, T1/E1,  
High-Speed Serial Interface (HSSI), T3/E3, T3/E3 ATM, multichannel T1/E1, multichannel T3/E3,  
OC-3 ATM, Packet over SONET (POS), and OC-12 ATM. For a list of supported port adapters, refer to

Product Description  
The topics discussed in this section are as follows:  
The VIP6-80 is available for use as an option with the Cisco 7505, Cisco 7507, Cisco 7507-MX,  
Cisco 7513, Cisco 7513-MX, Cisco 7576, and the Cisco 7000 series routers. The VIP6-80 is not  
currently available as an upgrade to an existing VIP.  
The VIP6-80 has a main processor and memory. When distributed switching is enabled on the router, the  
VIP6-80 can make packet switching decisions to help reduce the load on the Route Switch Processor  
(RSP). Interfaces located on port adapters that fit into the VIP6-80 connect the router to the external  
network. Either one dual-width or two single-width PAs can be used on the VIP6-80. See the “Port  
Adapter Slots” section on page 7 for more information.  
The VIP6-80 supports OIR. VIP6-80 PAs do not support OIR, so you must first remove the VIP6-80  
before removing or installing the PAs.  
The VIP6-80 also supports Single Line Card Reload (SLCR), a feature which speeds recovery of a failed  
router by reloading a failed line card without reloading other line cards on the network backplane. For  
Table 1 outlines features of the VIP6-80 model.

LEDs  
The VIP6-80 has LEDs; however, they are not be visible once the VIP is installed in the Cisco 7500 or  
the Cisco 7000 router. The port adapters that fit into the VIP do have visible LEDs. Refer to the  
Installation and Configuration Guide for your specific port adapter for more information.  
Jumpers  
There are no user-configurable jumpers on the VIP6-80.  
Microcode  
The Cisco 7500 and Cisco 7000 series routers support downloadable microcode, which enables you to  
upgrade microcode versions by downloading new microcode images, storing them in system Flash  
memory, and instructing the system to load its image from Flash memory. You can store multiple images  
for an interface type, such as the VIP6-80, and, with a configuration command, instruct the system to  
load any one of them or the default microcode image. Although multiple microcode versions for a  
specific interface type can be stored concurrently in Flash memory, only one image can load at startup.  
The show controllers cbus command displays the currently loaded and running microcode version for  
each interface processor and the VIP6-80. The show startup-config EXEC command shows the current  
system instructions for loading microcode at startup.  
Software and interface processor microcode images are bundled to work together. Overriding the bundle  
can result in system incompatibilities. We recommend that you use the microcode included in the  
software bundle. For information on upgrading software and microcode in Cisco 7500 series routers, see  
the Cisco IOS Software Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guides for the mainline software  
release that you are running.  
ROM Monitor  
The VIP6-80 read-only memory (ROM) monitor, known as Rommon, is firmware. It runs a brief set of  
system diagnostics, initializes the VIP6-80 hardware, and downloads a copy of the Cisco IOS image. The  
ROM monitor loads the Cisco IOS image from Flash memory or from a TFTP server. While multiple  
Cisco IOS images can be stored in RSP Flash memory, just one can be loaded at system startup.

The VIP6-80 ROM monitor functions similarly to the boot loader image on the RSP, which runs a copy  
of the Cisco IOS image. The boot loader image allows the router to access the Cisco IOS image when  
powering up or initializing the system.  
Port Adapter Slots  
The VIP6-80 supports up to two single-width port adapters, or one dual-width port adapter. Figure 1  
shows a VIP6-80 with two single-width port adapter slots. A dual-width port adapter occupies both port  
adapter slots (not shown).  
To ensure proper airflow in the router and compliance with EMI prevention standards, a VIP6-80 with  
one single-width port adapter must have a blank port adapter installed in the empty port adapter slot  
location.  
VIP6-80 does not support OIR of PAs. To install or replace port adapters, first remove the VIP6-80.  
Note  
Note  
A VIP6-80 without at least one installed port adapter is not supported.  
The VIP6-80 does not support the PA-GE.  
Table 4 identifies the port adapters supported by the VIP6-80 at the time of this writing.

System Software  
The Cisco 7505, Cisco 7507, Cisco 7507-MX, Cisco 7513, Cisco 7513-MX, and Cisco 7576 routers  
support downloadable system software and microcode for most Cisco IOS and microcode upgrades. This  
enables you to remotely download, store, and boot from a new image. For information on upgrading  
software and microcode in Cisco 7500 series routers, see the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals  
Configuration Guides for the mainline software release that you are running.  
The Cisco IOS software images reside in Flash memory, in the form of a dual in-line memory module  
(DIMM). Flash memory contains the default system software image and bundled microcode images.  
Storing the Cisco IOS images in Flash memory enables you to download and boot from upgraded Cisco  
IOS images remotely or from software images resident in the VIP6-80 Flash memory.  
For the latest software release information, refer to the Software Advisor at  
At system startup, an internal system utility scans for compatibility problems between the installed  
interface processor types and the bundled microcode images. The utility then decompresses the images  
into running dynamic random-access memory (DRAM). The bundled microcode images then function  
the same as the EPROM images.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when electronic cards or components are  
improperly handled, results in complete or intermittent failures.  
Use the following guidelines for preventing ESD damage:  
Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.  
Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.  
When installing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to  
properly seat the bus connectors in the backplane.  
When removing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to  
release the bus connectors from the backplane or midplane.  
Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or  
connectors.  
Place a removed board component-side-up on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding container.  
Avoid contact between the printed circuit boards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects  
components from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.  
Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.  
Caution  
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be  
between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohms).

Guidelines for Removal and Installation  
This section describes the correct procedures to avoid unnecessary board failures.  
Note  
The VIP6-80 installation is the same for each router model, except where otherwise noted.  
The VIP6-80 is oriented horizontally in the Cisco 7010 and Cisco 7505 routers, and vertically in the  
Cisco 7000, Cisco 7507, Cisco 7507-MX, Cisco 7513, Cisco 7513-MX, and Cisco 7576 routers.  
Follow these guidelines when removing and installing the VIP6-80:  
Install VIP6-80s in the interface processor slots closest to the RSP slots first, and then work out to  
the interface processor slots furthest from the RSP slots to ensure compliance with EMI approvals.  
Remove or insert only one VIP at a time. Allow the system time to complete the initialization  
process before removing or inserting another VIP. Disrupting the sequence can cause the system to  
detect spurious hardware failures.  
Remove any interface processors before removing and installing any PAs.  
Handle processor modules by the carrier handles and carrier edges only; never touch the board or  
any connector pins. (See Figure 2.)  
Use the ejector levers when removing the VIP6-80 to ensure that the backplane connector pins  
disconnect from the interface processor in the proper sequence. A VIP6-80 that is only partially  
connected to the backplane can hang the bus.  
Use the ejector levers when inserting the VIP6-80, as shown in Figure 3. Failure to do so can disrupt  
the order in which the pins make contact with the VIP6-80, and may cause the system to interpret a  
board failure.  
Insert an interface processor filler in any unused interface processor slots to keep dust out of the  
router and to maintain proper airflow through the interface processor compartment.

Removing a VIP6-80  
This section describes the procedure for removing a VIP6-80.  
Caution  
If your router has an RSP2 as the standby with the high system availability (HSA) feature or high  
availability (HA) features enabled, online insertion and removal of any interface processor in either  
CyBus might cause the standby RSP2 to reboot with a bus error or a processor memory parity error. The  
active RSP recovers from this event and issues a “cBus Complex Restart” message. Systems that are  
configured with an RSP4/4+, an RSP8, or an RSP16 as the system standby are not affected and do not  
experience this problem. For more information on HSA or HA, refer to your RSP installation and  
configuration guide.  
If your router has an RSP2 as the standby with the HSA feature or HA features enabled, perform the  
following steps before proceeding with the VIP6-80 removal:  
Step 1  
Step 2  
Step 3  
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unpainted chassis surface.  
Remove the standby RSP2.  
Wait 20 to 30 seconds. This time will vary depending on the number of interfaces installed on your  
system.  
This completes the additional steps you must perform if you have an RSP2 configured as the standby  
with HSA or HA enabled. Continue with the following steps to finish the removal of the VIP6-80 from  
the router.  
Perform the following steps to remove a VIP6-80 from your router:  
Step 1  
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unpainted chassis surface, if you have not  
already done so.  
Step 2  
Step 3  
Disconnect all cables from the VIP6-80 port adapter interface ports.  
Use a screwdriver to loosen the captive installation screws at both ends of the board. (See Figure 3a.)  
Caution  
Step 4  
Always use the ejector levers to remove a VIP6-80. Failure to do so can cause erroneous system error  
messages indicating a board failure.  
Place your thumbs on the ejector levers and simultaneously pull both of the ejector levers outward (in  
the direction shown in Figure 3a) to release the board from the backplane connector.  
Use the board’s handle to carefully pull it straight out of the slot, keeping your other hand under the  
carrier to guide it. (See Figure 3c.) Keep the board parallel to the backplane.  
If you removed a VIP6-80 or interface processor and the interface processor slot is to remain empty,  
install an interface processor filler (Product Number MAS7K-BLANK=) to keep dust out of the  
router, maintain proper airflow inside the router, and ensure compliance with EMI approvals by  
providing a tight EMI-preventive seal. Do not leave the interface processor slot open.

Step 5  
Place the removed board on an antistatic mat or foam pad, or place it in an antistatic container if you  
plan to return it to the factory.  
This completes the procedure for removing a VIP6-80. Proceed to the“Installing a VIP6-80” section on  
Note  
If you have an RSP2 configured as the standby with HSA or HA enabled, continue with the following  
steps to finish the removal of the VIP6-80 from the router.  
Step 1  
Step 2  
Wait 20 to 30 seconds. This time will vary depending on the number of interfaces installed in your  
system.  
Reinsert the standby RSP2.  
This completes the procedure for removing a VIP6-80 if you have an RSP2 configured as the standby  
RSP with HSA feature or HA features enabled. Proceed to the “Installing a VIP6-80” section on page 24.  
Removing and Installing Port Adapters  
This section describes how to remove and install port adapters. It includes the following sections:  
If you are not removing or installing a port adapter, proceed to the “Installing a VIP6-80” section on  
Port adapters do not support OIR, so you must first remove the VIP6-80 before removing or installing  
the PA. Refer to the “Removing a VIP6-80” section on page 18 if you have not already removed the  
VIP6-80.  
Tools and Parts Required  
To remove or install a port adapter, you need the following tools and parts:  
A new port adapter or a replacement port adapter (if replacing a failed port adapter, you should have  
an antistatic container for shipment back to the factory)  
An ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unpainted chassis surface  
Number 1 Phillips screwdriver  
Note  
Always handle the port adapter by the carrier edges and handle; never touch the port adapter components  
or connector pins. (See Figure 4.)

Single-Width Port Adapter  
Single-width port adapters occupy one of the two port adapter slots on a VIP6-80. When a single-width  
port adapter slot is not in use, use a blank port adapter to fill the empty slot to allow the router to conform  
to EMI emissions requirements and to allow proper airflow through the router. If you plan to install a  
new single-width port adapter in a port adapter slot that is not in use, first remove the blank port adapter.  
Figure 5 describes the steps required to install a single-width port adapter.
